Brain Twister


Published September 6, 2007


An FBI agent hunts for a mindreader, while hampered by a hangover, overzealous nursing homes, and an unstable boss. That's bad enough. Then he finds his telepath -- and his real troubles begin....

Written under the pseudonym "Mark Phillips" by sf writers Randall Garrett and Lawrence M. Janifer, this funny science fiction adventure predates the X-Files by a good thirty years. Under its original title That Nice Old Lady, it was nominated in 1960 for the Hugo Award for Best Novel, against such contenders as Heinlein's Starship Troopers, Dickson's Dorsai, a classic Murray Leinster tale, and Vonnegut's The Sirens of Titan.


Run time approx. 6 hrs.
